Children's Christian Education
Children Sunday School is a Bible-based Christian education program offered every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:30. Exception: When the 8:30 service and the 10:45 service are combined into a single service there is no children's Sunday school.
Children Sunday School is for children ages 3 through fourth grade. Younger infants and toddlers may go to the nursery on the second floor where two attendants will care for them. While Children Sunday School is in session, middle school, high school, and adults attend their own classes.
Children's Music Ministries
The children's music ministry of Gay Street United Methodist Church enables the children of the church to share their talents with their church family and sing to the glory of God. The RainbowSingers (4yrs, kindergarten, & 1st grade) and the Sunbeam Choir (2nd through 5th grades) participate in worship each month during the school year. In addition to monthly responsibilities, the children present a special Christmas service and are responsible for leading the congregation in our annual "Children's Day" service the first Sunday of May.
Camps and Retreat Ministries
East Ohio Camps and Retreat Ministries offer something for everyone – children, youth, adults and families – and can provide accommodations year-round for a small intimate setting or a large group gathering.
Whether it be fun in the sun at Summer Camp or cozying up to the lodge fire while on retreat, East Ohio Camps and Retreat Ministries offer you the opportunity to listen for God’s whisper among the towering timbers and refreshing waters of our three unique camp sites.
Camp Aldersgate, Camp Asbury, and Camp Wanake each offer Summer Camps and year-round retreat facilities. Participants have incredible experiences while they make new friends, try new things, learn about God, learn about themselves, and then take it all home.
Our goal is to provide comfortable settings and quality programs through which people can experience Christ’s love for them and all creation, and have the opportunity to share that love with others.
We invite you to explore God’s greatest gift – “the Wonder of Nature” – with memorable camping and retreat experiences in East Ohio.
Please remember that the church will help with the cost of the registration fee if you so choose.
